has anyone ever made home-made churros? are there any particular tips and tricks to making them at home?
my brother and i just tried making some and when we were heating up the oil we realised we didn't have the decorative piping to make the churros' texture, so in the end he just rolled the dough and fried them lol.
what are some of your favorite apps for the Android?
I am looking at a listing for an apartment. It lists itself as "2 br, 1.75 bath." What the devil is a three-quarter bath?
A three-quarter bath is a bathroom with a toilet, sink, and shower, but no tub. Thanks TQC!
what food blogs do you read?
what is your favorite restaurant? (bonus points for online menus)
Dear TQC Poets and Empaths,
I've been searching, but there is no perfect apology card to send to my gastroenterologist to apologize for my inadvertently incomplete preparation for my colonoscopy. If there were a Hallmark card for this occasion, what would it say?
My cookies always come out of the oven puffy, but then they flatten out when they cool. How can I make them stay puffy (keeping them vegan)? More baking soda/powder? More egg alternative? My ugly cookies need your help! Dx
This month is going way too fast yes?

I have a "healthy" prepackaged salad that expired yesterday for lunch. Fruit, nuts, mixed greens, that sort of thing, no cheese or meat. Can't spot any mold on anything but the raspberries are looking a little rough around the edges. Will I get horribly horribly sick if I eat it?
is it pronounced gra-nay-dah or greh-nawd-ah?
1. Where were you 3 hours ago?
2. Who are you in love with?
3. Have you ever eaten a crayon?
4. Is there anything pink within 10 feet of you?
5. When is the last time you went to the mall?
1)What was your favorite toy you got during the holidays when you were small?
2)If you ever watched Buffy semi-regularly, were you more pro-spike/buffy or pro-angel/buffy?
3)What's your favorite holiday sweet? I always loved Christmas because my mom would make so many awesome cookie type things and we'd get to help and lick the bowl afterwards.
Are there any other games that are similar to Words with Friends? Not in terms of the game material itself, but the ability to play with specific people and to be able to just check in on it every now and then rather than play it solidly?
I have an android myself, but would ideally like to be able to play with a friend who has an iphone.
Any music suggestions for stuff similar to Tricky, but not Massive Attack?(I like Tricky, but not MA)
You are newly moved in to a house. You decide one night to utilise your humble BBQ grill to prepare yourself some dinner. While cooking this dinner-for-one, someone over the fence greets you with the 'friendly' information that "Around here, when we have a BBQ, we invite the neighbours." Immediately, there are many responses you want to give, but can only give one. What do you say to this neighbour, bearing in mind that any response can impact you and/or your neighbour in the short and/or long-term?
I did a search for like 6 pages back with no help, and seriously need time for a nap before I go back to work so I'm just going to throw it out there.
My mom called me on Sunday and left me a message requesting that I send her a wish list for "big-ticket items." I could barely make a list for regular ticket items! I'm not really good at asking for things, and usually when I do it's for things I think I need.
So, basically, the only thing I could come up with was a new vacuum, but even then I feel guilty because I already have a vacuum that mostly works so why on earth should I ask for a new one? Ugh I hate getting presents. Does anyone else feel this way?
Anyway, she called me again this morning so the pressure is on. She won't take "nothing" or "donate it" for an answer.
If someone asked you what expensive item you'd like for Christmas, what would you ask for? Let's cap it at $500.
you really like somebody, and in a month they'll be moving out of the country for a year. how much time/emotion do you invest in this person? what if that person wanted to be in a relationship for that month and not see anybody else but you? (sorry if that was worded weird)
You have a gift card to some store, and you use that gift card to buy someone's Christmas gift.
On a scale of one to ten, ten being the worst person ever and one being "no way, I'd do it all the time," how tacky is this?
Do you have favorite songs that aren't in your language, but you learned the lyrics (as best to your ability) and sing along with them anyway? What songs are those?
For Christmas I'm making fudge.
So far I've made:
Candy Cane Chocolate Fudge
Chocolate Caramel Cashew Fudge (which is bomb)
I want to make a 4th fudge. What flavor should I make?
I haven't watched America's Next Top Model for years because it got so repetitive & predictable but then I noticed that the new season was all stars and I'm curious. I always used to watch it on youtube but it seems impossible now... does anyone have any links to watch online? In canada that is..
In what ways do your pets show compassion? I've been sick since the weekend and my little pup hasn't left my side. I wake up with her sleeping on my chest looking depresed & confused about why I haven't gotten out of bed in days.
You received an 83.8% (503/600 points) in a very difficult class. The cut off for an A is 85% (510/600), posted at the beginning of the class. Do you try to argue your way to the higher grade? Do you meet with your professor or do it over e-mail?
Would you argue if you were only .5% away from the higher grade?
How paranoid are you when it comes to 'use by' or 'sell by' dates on food? Do you trust yourself to know when something has gone bad or is off?
a few years ago i painted an oil painting on canvas. it is not framed or behind glass, and is currently not hanging. i just realized it would look nice in my bathroom. is that a bad idea, to hang an oil painting in a room that gets steamy/humid often? fwiw it is no masterpiece and has only sentimental / "look what i did!" value. thanks!
Because at this time we celebrate the miracle of the oil that burned for eight days (even though there was only enough to last one day in the eternal lamp in the Temple), we also make a deliberate effort to cook with oil. Thus, potato pancakes (latkes) are a Chanukah specialty.
I dug out my grandmother's ancient cookbook to follow the recipe she would have used. Once I have prepared the potato mixture, I am supposed to "drop [it] by spoonfuls on a hot, well greased spider in small cakes."
The word "spider" is not a typo. It appears in several variations of the recipe.
I ask you, TQC, what were my ancestors smoking?
Meeting the S/O's best friend [and her husband] in person. Step up or not?
DK/DC: Favorite food?
its my 21st what should i drink today?
TQC, will you tell me if I'm crazy or not?
My office constantly gathers up piles of cash from all the employees as a gift for our boss for holidays, his birthday, Boss Day, what have you. And everyone in my office is scandalized that I refuse to contribute. If they were getting an actual thoughtful gift, MAYBE, but just cash? Why on earth would I give my boss money when he makes 10x more than me?! When he doesn't do anything for his employees for holidays/birthdays? No way. Tell me I'm not alone in being completely aghast at this practice.
what is your favourite stone and why?
will you show me something pretty made of jade?
What are your favourite Android apps?
You're at your SO's apartment. You stay over there a lot, and sometimes, you leave clothing there for one reason or another. Your SO tells you they think they washed a pair of your underwear with their clothes, and they give it to you.
But it's not your underwear.
A few notes: your SO has a roommate of the same sex and your SO and roommate have their own washer and dryer; no laundromat for them. The roommate doesn't have a boy/girlfriend of their own, but they do have a lot of one-night stands and short flings.
What do you do?
I'm looking to buy a nice, decent gaming desktop. Any recommendations? I'm considering building one, but just wanted to see if other people had any suggestions.
What would you do if you saw a man laughing while intentionally running seagulls over in the mall parking lot?
I have my driving test Friday.
What did they cover on your test? What would your words of sagely wisdom and advice be to a nervous person going into their exam? (let me know if you're in Georgia!)
How old were you when you got your driver's license?
Do you wish you waited longer? Got it sooner?
In all the movies where the kids know Santa exist and none of the adults believe them, where do the parents think all the gifts under the tree they didn't buy came from?
Are the videos on YouTube loading slow for anybody else?
What are you up to?
Have you ever been in a public restroom stall and someone walked up and opened the stall door while you were on the toilet?
This happened to me tonight. I thought I had latched the door all the way, but this girl came in and yanked it right open. How embarrassing.
Why are you angry at me when you're the one who didn't lock the door and I'm the one who knocked twice?
What makes you feel better when you feel like shit?
My answer: Boy Meets World
What things have you turned other people on to? Ex. kinds of movies, music, etc?
